“A History of American Music in Three Chords and Five Notes” Robert B. Jones, Sr. & Matt Watroba
November 2, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Robert Jones and Matt Watroba have been musical partners since first meeting more than 20 years ago. Their relationship started when they hosted back-to-back radio shows on WDET-FM in Detroit, MI. Later on, they started performing together and in doing so discovered a friendship based on mutual respect and a love for traditional American music.
For Matt and Robert, American roots music (folk, blues, spirituals, work songs, chants, etc.) is music that matters. This is the music that America and the world have in common. It is music that reflects history, social change, migration, hopes and dreams. It is music that is rich and diverse, direct and powerful.
